Julian Earl Farris earned his B.A. in English at Jacksonville University, his M.A. in English at Florida State University and then taught humanities, became an avid sailor, environmentalist and animal rights advocate, wrote and directed video documentaries on the humanities and resides in Jacksonville, Florida with his life partner and their two rescue cats, Bubba and Annie. He is working on his second novel, Families and Other Strangers.
Fifty years ago, three hundred teachers and students in Florida vanished. No storm troopers. No mass graves. Who were they? Just wasted lives from blackmail, coercion, entrapment—tactics of state senator Charlie Johns and his covert investigations of homosexuals in Florida’s universities. The Sin Warriors is a novel inspired by those actual events.
